The Disc And Bonus Features

The disc is encoded at a high bitrate, allowing it be to upscaled in software to an HD screen without any artefacts. The soundtrack makes use of the surrounds to enhance the viewing experience, but one would have thought there might have been a bit more distinct use of the rear speakers in a film such as this.

Bonus features include a few deleted scenes, and a behind the scenes look at creating the cars and practical stunts of the film, interviewing the family of stunt performers involved in the shoot, and adding another level to the excitement and fun on the film.
